Harsh truth: no, you're not. You're safe from truthful accusations of having done so and from people misinterpreting your whistling of Some People Call Me The Space Cowboy as a wolf-whistle aimed at them, but you are not safe from allegations of sexual harassment. That was more or less said in jest...

I've never been able to whistle at all, so at least I'm safe from any accusations of doing that wolf-whistling thing.

I suspect the new connection to 'Home' is that it's somewhere you come back to after leaving the ground / Earth? That's the general idea. And perhaps the less obvious connection (thankyou Google) is that the band did a cover / tribute to Bowie. Yes? That's actually something I didn't even know. The...

I foil the plans made in the last valid post hoping that the ensuing confusion will prevent it from being foiled.

And so, I give Snide Sniper some earplugs as well, so that he won't hear the compliment.
